Yes or no. Your instructor would be your best source of information as your program may have contracts set up with a specific company or require a certain level of check.Thanks for your response. My instructor does my background check?
That's absolutely true. I was working 10-12 hour days, 5 days per week, in my first week in class and have just now, at the end of the second week, got caught up. Now, I only work 3 days per week (still long hours) and am taking weekends off, in hopes that this will be enough for me to keep up. I really hope I pass this course so that I can change careers. Unfortunately with kids and bills, I can't lessen my hours anymore than I have. When I'm not working, I'm studying. That's about it.Everyone feels nervous and like they have more to learn. That's normal. Your classroom training will be a foundation for your field training.
Also, not to be an ***, but if you want to succeed in class, don't fall behind on anymore assignments. Not because of the letter grade, but because you will become overwhelmed.
1. What you learn in school is an important foundation for what you'll learn in the field.One more question... Did y'all really remember everything you learned in class, or did you find the majority of your learning to be on the job?
I'm more of a learn by doing kind of person, and I'm nervous about my ability to retain all the info from class enough to apply it when it matters. Anyone else have the same jitters while they were in training? Thanks again.
3. Being nervous about mastering new skills is normal. To eliminate all nervousness, I think you'd have to not care about what you're doing. Not caring works against the whole patient-provider thing.
